2 Years Without wine o’clock

This maybe sounds like a bit of a braggy post and I’ve hesitated about it but am hopeful it may help you or someone else reading it…

I celebrated 2 years alcohol-free on Boxing Day and feel so proud because I honestly never thought I would be able to do it! 🏆

Before I quit on Boxing Day 2021, wine o’clock had absolutely become an unhealthy and unhelpful coping strategy to escape the stressors of life (motherhood + businesses + farm ++). I became concerned about my habits when I began breaking every drinking rule I set myself (just one tonight, no drinking during the week, etc). 😔

I didn’t get to a rock bottom place with drinking but I knew I wanted to change the path I was on. It’s taken willpower, a shift in my beliefs and subconscious programming and of course my everyday habits. The fear of rejection and failure that I had has been unfounded, thankfully. 😉

I owe so much to @sober_in_the_country and @katiecharltonhealthcoach @thisnakedmind and love the important work @ruralsobriety and @sarahrusbatch are doing in this space.
